Aston Martin’s Rapide E, the company’s first all-electric vehicle, has been officially unveiled at 2019 Auto Shanghai. It’s powered by 800V, 65 kWh battery encased in carbon fiber and Kevlar, complete with over 5600 ltihium-ion 18650 format cylindrical cells, that generates 601 hp and 700 lb-ft of torque, enabling it to hit 60 mph in just 4-seconds. You can expect a driving range of over 200 miles on a full charge, and the high power AC on-board charger can fully power the battery in just 3-hours at the standard 185 miles per hour through a common 400V 50kW charger or fast charging at 310 miles per hour.

Forged aluminum wheels have also been developed for the model and come wrapped in special Pirelli P-Zero tires. Production of the Aston Martin Rapide E will be capped at 155 units worldwide,” reports Car Scoops.
